Why this must be read:

Kallie is a fairly new writer, both in terms of Gibbs/Ducky and in terms of writing, this story is only her second Gibbs/Ducky story, nonetheless I feel she has done a splendid job. She is also very new to Live Journal and has only made a handful of posts before. She wrote it as part of the ncis_gibbsducky Yuletide Gift Exchange (2007) to the specific requests of another member of the community and novice writer or not, she hit all of the recipient's requests. I think the greatest testament to this kind of story has to be the reaction the recipient and I can tell you that she (ashley_pitt) loved it.

From my point of view she did what I thought was hitherto undo-able, she made me not dislike Hollis Mann. The story is of the aftermath of Hollis's death, and how Gibbs comes to terms not only with her death and his own behaviour leading up to it, but also his own feelings related to Shannon and Kelly and to Ducky. The entire team feature in the story too when, one morning, they arrive at work to find both Gibbs and Ducky missing. They are determined to give Gibbs the support they think he needs, because they are after all, family.

It has a great mix of emotions, it had me smiling and sniffing; it's loving, tender, moving, painful at times, full of affection, and the characters are very much the men and women we see on the screen. Kallie, to my mind, did a great job on it and it is well worth reading.
